I have a new book out on writing, with a lot of self-help tips I have learned over the years. I have a lot of stuff in there, but I am going to try to keep it short and sweet.
I’m not really sure how many credits a full-time student is, but I’m pretty sure it’s at least 40. Most of my graduate classes are in the range of 60-80, and I have a master’s in English. I am currently working on a second book about writing, and I’m hoping to have the first out by the end of this year.
I currently have a total of 15 credits in just over four years, so its only fair that I can post these credits in an even more short amount of time. This is only a year after i wrote my book, so I’m still working on it.
While most people would have their college experience in the six months after the first semester, I would argue that most of us end up in the “real world” in the two years between first and second. In the past, I would be a little disappointed to have graduated and have no real-world experience, but I think that that’s no longer the case. As our society becomes more digital, the lines between online and offline life become more blurred.
I actually graduated without any real-world experience. I was accepted to study abroad for the first time, and ended up spending most of my career as a freelance writer, working on several tech sites (I’d worked on a few sites that were not tech-related but ended up not hiring me). I didn’t end up going to any actual college, but I’m still in the process of working through my degrees, and planning to go to grad school.
It’s just as it’s always been. I graduated high school without any real-world experience. And my career has been largely online and freelance. I don’t feel as lost as I used to feel in regards to my job.
I just wanted to point out that not all of us who graduated high school without any real-world experience feel as lost as we did.
I recently graduated with a degree in Criminal Justice. Like many people, I went to a four year school, but I’m glad I didn’t end up at a liberal arts school because my educational record has been pretty awful. I graduated with an average grade point average, and I was the only one of my friends who went to college. I’m glad I didn’t end up with a degree in Criminal Justice.
At a minimum, you need at least eight credits to graduate with a high school diploma and get a job. Most people graduate with a 4.0, but I would recommend a 5.0. It may not be the degree you think it is, but you can usually get a job anyway. The more credits you have, the easier it is to get a job, and the more likely you are to have good grades and good jobs.
My college professor was a bit of a snob. He taught us history, and he said that the more credits you have, the better a job you are likely to get. I know that sounds a bit snobbish, but it’s true (and you can read more about that here). The point is that you should have at least 8 credits to get a job. I went to a state school, which was a 4.
